Airport hotels?

We will be landing in St. Thomas mid- to late-afternoon, and need a comfortable place to stay just overnight, near the airport. We saw the mixed reviews of the Best Western, and although we would prefer not to drag luggage up stairs, also don't know about the safety of being in a ground floor room. Are there any others equally close to and convenient to the airport?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

We stay at the Best Western Emerald Beach at least twice a year for a week after our stay on St. John. We request a first floor room and have not had any problem with safety. There are locks on the door and a bar to place across the sliding glass doors. The beach is right outside your room, the water is calm and beautiful, and the beach bar is fun and serves a good burger. We have never felt unsafe and recommend this hotel.

For a single night's accommodation with airport convenience primary, the BWEB is absolutely the way to go.

Two comments though.

If you are in reasonable health, and dragging luggage up a flight of stairs is an obstacle, you are bringing way too much luggage.

Just like anyplace else, you should take the standard simple precautions. Don't leave valuables unattended on the beach, lock your room doors, etc, etc, stc..

The Sunday we left STJ to fly out of STT we had a three hr wait , we taxi'd over to BWEB and sat at their outside beach bar ordered drinks and burgers and swam in the pool it was a terrific time , if we need to stay on STT that would be the place.

We too have stayed at the BWEB and can recommend it. Check out my review. The price is the only downside for me but its in line with other properties on island in the same niche.
